Tear Stained Eyes

Tear stained eyes and
A broken heart.
I’m having trouble
Feeling
Anything
At
All
The storm is over and all that’s left is
The aftertaste of ache.
In my heart there is a hole
Right where you used to be.
Right where you used to be.

Tear Stained Eyes and
5 missed calls.
I don’t want to hear you say you’re sorry
Because
You’re
Not.
I know you’re not.
This has been going on
For too long now.
Empty apologies like Fool’s Gold.
Appealing on the outside,
But on the inside, worthless.

Tear Stained Eyes
And a worn old Bible
Open to a verse
About Hope.
God, where are you now?
Where are you now?
Tell me my worth, Lord
For I cannot find it.
I thought you were everything I needed.
But I am so empty, and dry
And Thirsting for love.
Where are you now?


Tear Stained Eyes and
A Diary.
Full of
Poems about your Eyes
And how Amazing and Dazzling
You Are.
Poems about every other time I’ve been broken.
But this time,
No words will come to me.
Writing isn’t enough.
A tear
S l i d e s
Down my cheek and
Leaves a Teardrop
On my diary.
That tear
Fits my situation
Better than any poem.




Tear Stained Eyes
And moving on,
I loved you once, but
Now
I need someone who loves me.
I need someone who
Will
Catch
Me when I
Fall.
And that’s not you.
No. That’s not you.
Not you.
